We woke up to beautiful weather today, so we packed a picnic basket and drove a few miles away to Valle, an area that has six different nature reserves, where you can both go fishing and hiking. 

We were going up Jättadalen valley, a deep creek ravine framed by diabase cliffs. It's quite a steep path all the way to the top, but the view from the top is worth all the effort!

It felt almost like hashing! Made me think of my many climbs up and down hills in my Borneo jungle!

From the top you can see really far in the distance; you can spot some of the 365 lakes and get the Kinnekulle mountain as a backdrop. We had our picnic there before we continued down again.

There are an abundance of trails and info signs around this area. There are about 60 km of signed trails to choose from in Valle. This kame country landscape is quite unusual, it was created when the ice melted and ravaged the area some 10 000 years ago.

It was in this area the "flower king" Carl von Linné chartered all existing flora in 1746.
